The safe handling of carcinogens is the handling of cancer causing substances in a safe and responsible ogens are defined as 'a substance or agent that can cause cells to become cancerous by altering their genetic structure so that they multiply continuously and become malignant'. The Australian NOHSC Definitions divides carcinogens into three categories. Thus, with proper handling, even highly toxic chemicals can be used safely. Conversely, less toxic chemicals can be extremely hazardous if handled improperly. The actual health risk of a chemical depends on the toxicity and the actual exposure. No matter how toxic the material may be, there is little risk involved unless it enters the body. Carcinogens, Reproductive Toxins, and Teratogens To ensure the current status of a chemical, check with the coordinating agency at the locations footnoted, a current safety data sheet (SDS) or call Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) at ()
